01/30/14 A Valentine’s Lunch for Kids

Valentine's LunchHead on over to Spoonful to see my latest post – a Valentine’s Day lunch for kids.

Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year. As I make the girls’ lunches at 6 am, it has to be something quick and simple that I can make before my first cup of coffee has taken effect. You can see the full post here. 

What are your tips for making yummy lunches without much brain power?


(I took a food photography class at Alt last week taught by Joy and Lindsey and it was fabulous! I was excited to be back home and able put my newly acquired skills to work.  I hope you like the image.)
